A Finish and a First

Posted on: September 26th, 2013 by Lorna McMahon

I finished the Gone Fishing quilt yesterday.

This is the first quilt I have ever made using a matched binding.
Luckily, I had just enough of the sky fabric to do so!
I had thought of making a scrappy, colourful binding.
But there was already enough rainbow going on with these fish.

I quilted around each of the fish and all of the letters.  Then quilted waves in the water….

And clouds and wind in the sky…. Well, organic clouds and wind!

Fishy, fishy in the brook,
Papa catch him on a hook,
Mama fry him in a pan,
Baby eat him like a man.

Putting this quilt up for sale in my Etsy shop!
